The Global Knowledge Initiative (GKI) is pleased to announce the formalization of a relationship we have long enjoyed with Uganda’s National Council for Science and Technology (UNCST).  On 6 November 2013, GKI Program Officer Andrew Gerard (on behalf of Chief Operating Officer Sara Farley) and UNCST Executive Secretary Dr. Peter Ndemere signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) officially connecting the two organizations and providing a framework for future activities.

GKI and UNCST have collaborated with great success in the past.  In 2009, GKI helped UNCST develop mechanisms to put their newly developed National Science, Technology and Innovation policy into action.  GKI’s “From Policy to Action” policy dialogue connected policy makers and researchers to critical resources to facilitate the implementation of the national policy.  Given the success of our past collaborations, we are thrilled to inaugurate an even closer long-term partnership with UNCST.
